Santorini, Part 2

Thera has both Greek Orthodox and Roman Catholic churches. The two photos below are from the Roman Catholic side of things. The blue with the white walls and blue sky is very striking. There is a small dome in Thera shown inmany photos and commercials for Santorini which is no longer blue; it is now white.

Below are a couple of very interesting entrances. The one with the stairs leading down is the entrance to a restaurant, I think. The other one may be a doorway to a monastery or nunnery; I can't remember for sure.

The four photos below are all of the Catholic church.

This photo is part of the same Catholic complex.

The sun is setting and the moon rising over Thera.

Sunset at Santorini.
